MAXWELL-STOCKED.

Concentrated. Robust. Characterful. The qualities of the winemaker reflect in the quality of the wine. Because every wine that’s made by Maxwell is, indeed, Maxwell-made. The unique result of one man’s vision, tenacity and unbending standards. Since 1979, Mark Maxwell has come to understand the unique terroir of our limestone hill. And extract every characteristic nuance for every estate wine, regardless of price. Little wonder James Halliday noted our consistent excellence – in red wines particularly – and accorded us his five red-star rating.

2015 Four Roads 'Old Vine' Grenache

These old Grenache vines have grown for 89 years on a classic contoured hill with a south facing aspect. They were bush vines with their thick trunks and sprawling arms until a few years ago when they were lifted up and put on a trellis wire to keep them ripening evenly as they grow older. The soil profile is a light loam over some clay and then deep limestone. The vines are hand pruned and hand picked for the highest quality fruit. 

Tasting Notes

Colour Deep plum red.

Nose Aromatics of raspberry and red fruits with a hint of herbs.

Palate Fine tannins and mouth filling flavours are balanced to make this wine approachable. Complex spices, savoury fruits and delicate vanilla oak, and fruit concentration from the old wines.

Vintage Notes

The winter in 2014 was wetter than usual which resulted in well soaked soils. From August to early January it stayed dry with above average temperatures. Flowering started earlier than average and the grape set was even, but our vines had low bunch numbers. Veraison started normally but accelerated with a mini heatwave early January. Throughout January, 40mm of rain fell, double the average, but very helpful to freshen up the vines. Ripening continued with warm dry days and cool nights and we started harvest with the Verdelho on the 9th February, the earliest on record.
